How many clients can Cascade hold?
As Cascade runs on Excel, its storage capacity is governed by the number of rows containing the formulae. The standard version of Cascade holds up to 500 clients. The Go-Large module increases this to 2000 clients.
It is possible to add or remove clients as you go, as long as you don’t exceed the overall capacity. We use the term clients, which could equally apply to staff or students depending on your environment.
You can either buy the Go-Large module at the time of purchase or get it at a later date. There is a slight saving when you purchase it at the outset with Cascade.
The concept is to store all your clients in the one copy of Cascade. This enables you to try out different team arrangements and search across your whole client list.
If you need a capacity greater than 2000, you can create another copy of Cascade under the same license.
What are coaches saying about Cascade?
I'm so thankful for Richard's vision for Cascade. In a recent teambuilding engagement, it was so helpful -- not to mention a time-saver -- to have this material to share with the participants, as they were anxious to see what their whole team looked like. Along with the Team Strengths Grid that was used to facilitate discussion and learning, I left each participant with a Bring/Need sheet to further enhance conversation back in their offices. I also used the Personal Insights sheets for a separate conversation with just the admin team -- I had them look at each other's Personal Insights sheets to then fill out Gallup's Partnership Cards for each other; I like using this instead of having them read each other's report because I think the spreadsheet is easier to digest in a short amount of time (and I was able to direct them to the rows that say "The Value I Bring" and "The Needs I Have" specifically).
These additional tools along with the ease of printing the name tents makes Cascade worth the cost within just one client engagement! I am looking forward to using more and seeing what else Richard comes up with in the future.
I work with college students, student groups, and professional staff members (teams) who all have benefited dramatically from Releasing Strengths [Cascade]. As a coach, it has helped my clients better organize their results and enhances the ability to process their newfound learnings.
